Weave Your Own Tote Bag 1F22
Create a custom tote-bag from your original, woven fabric. You'll learn to weave your own textile on a pre set rigid heddle loom using re purposed cotton strips of fabric, along with a wide selection of quality yarns.
You'll weave and create your own individual design, experimenting with varied fibers to your personal aesthetic.
Once the fabric has been woven, the workshop instructor, Dahlia, will take your weaving back to her studio, assemble the bag, and ship it to you. (Labor costs and shipping included in tuition fee).
